We measured the thermal magnetic noise generated by the inner high-permeability wall of a magnetically shielded room. This room houses a magnetoencephalogram (MEG), which contains 102 “small” identical magnetometers. For the measurement, we created two large magnetometers by summing the outputs of 46 magnetometers equally on the helmet's left and right side, to look at the summed noise of the right and left vertical walls. From these summed outputs, we calculated the rms noise amplitude due to all six walls at the MEG location to be ∼0.5 f T/ at 100 Hz, only slowly rising with lower frequency. This is well below the system noise of each small MEG magnetometer, hence is negligible for the MEG.
